Mitt Romney's 13 Globalist 'Working Groups' Exposed

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled “Romney’s Foreign Policy Advisers Exposed as Globalists” where I compiled a list of the 22 individuals selected by Mitt Romney to serve as his foreign policy advising team back in October 2011.

Along with the names of each of these individuals, I included a list of globalist, neo-con, or otherwise nefarious organizations or government offices that they belong to or have belonged to in the past.

Besides announcing a foreign policy advising team, Romney also announced 13 (interesting number) working groups dedicated to regional and issue-specific policies. It is not surprising that the individuals, although somewhat less important in terms of their pedigree, are themselves diehard globalists.

As I wrote in my last article dealing with this subject:
Considering Romney’s attendance at the 2012 Bilderberg meeting and the apparent tendency of the elite in leaning to Romney as the next president, it is imperative that those who are aware of the forces truly guiding the United States and the rest of the world be prepared to shift gears, even if it is only temporary, and begin to expose Mitt Romney as the criminal globalist that he is.
Still, we must guard against being played like a tennis ball and rushing back into the arms of “Bush on steroids” Barack Obama. Unless we become significantly more streetwise than the general public has been in the past, the condition of the world will only continue to degenerate with every election, regardless of the results.

Therefore, I have compiled a similar listing of Mitt Romney’s 13 Working Groups, the individuals that make them up, and the organizations that they are or have been a part of. Keep in mind, the list is by no means comprehensive.

Our choice for 2012(since Ron Pauls has been knee-capped) will be globalist A or globalist B. The best way to win a horse race is to own all the horses

You can vote for Gary Johnson. He's on the ballot in all 50 states.

stevor said...

Yeah, too bad the LEMMINGS fell for this FRAUD. Yeah, he's a fraud AND obama is a fraud.
But then Ron Paul only got into the "race" because he wanted the power to get his son, Rand Paul, on the ballot as VP.
Geez,the whole "political process" is disgusting.

Well, as the RNC and each state's GOP have been SUED by Delegates for Ron Paul, in order to be allowed their vote (based on OUR voices), I say we all need to work very hard to ensure the suits are heard, immediately. The case(s) were filed about 11 days ago and we expect some relief very soon.
It is NOT over for Ron Paul and for any thinking man, Ron Paul is still the only choice. Rombama/Obmaney are so far from what any American should want, we need to really FIGHT for our liberty, NOW.
I mean; do we really just give up and roll over? Is that to be the end of this saga? I surely do hope not!
Everyone who's been disenfranchised needs to go to: or or RonPaulOne in youtube, and facebook, to learn what we STILL CAN DO.
Otherwise, we are screwed. Is that okay with you?

Romney would steal Christ off the cross and make a second trip for the nails.

Still better than Obama's Monsanto food safety czar and depopulation hopeful science czar Holdren.
Romney ain't perfect but he's better than the anti-American currently holding office.

Romney is still better than the current corrupt mess.
I dare you to print this.

At least I see only one Muslim name . . . not like the current regime!

CatPaq33 said...

Did you notice that all the names are American and not foreigners, except for one! That's better than the current regime!

Anonymous said...

I suggest those of you focusing on the 'Muslim' bandwagon, change your focus. The 'Muslim' are not the enemy of this country and never have been. Just read the history of what the US/British (Bank of London) coup did to Iran in 1953. The Arabs and Muslims are victims of Bank of London/Washington, DC. I am referring to the people, not the puppet dictators the US/British have installed. The rulers are in the UN. If you buy into this, you are being played for idiots.

The Bushbama era may give way to the ObaRomney era, or not.
Either way the bankster thug hits us with lefts and rights (D's and R's) and beats us into submission. The idea that some people have strong preferences as to which fist drills them in the face seems insane and pathetic.

Reject both criminal parties.

Ron Paul is a Racist. Is that what we want in this country? Saying he's a "constitutionalist" is redundant since the Supreme Court has made a mockery of our constitution. The Dems are the ONLY chance we have of some stability for 4 yrs and work on a new political force in 2016. Romney is a member of the New Right (Weyrich/Bilderberg) and no good will come to citizens under their Austerity Agenda/Theocracy.

Ron Paul is not a racist. The only commentators who bring up racism are the ones paid to use the software that allows a "person" to be up to fifty personas online from different areas to monitor and input divisive tactics.

Ron Paul is a constitutionalists, and his political background shows it.

As far as Rand Paul is concerned - remember when the TSA publicly had an altercation with him? (With "publicly" being the keyword) Was this was done as a warning to Ron and Rand from the "Elite" camp.

Plus rumors were when Dr. Ron Paul dropped from sight for a week plus that Mrs. Paul had been disappeared for a few days - NOT confirmed, but VERY believable (just before Rand committed to Romney).

People standing for Ron Paul in the GOP elections have had fingers broken, hip replacements broken, left police custody limping and on crutches, been arrested when the other party was the attacker, etc.

Plus NO Law enforcement arrested those committing Election Fraud while it was happening, videoed, witnessed, etc though it is both a FEDERAL and STATE crime; nor were there any arrests even though the injured parties requested arrests to be made.

Then there are the machines and software that count votes for a "wrong" candidate as a vote for the candidate being pushed on us. The people working the Elections who are aiding in the destruction of OUR nation and way of life by doing or allowing illegal actions to be done.

We need to go to LOW-TECH elections. Mark a huge box by each name and hand count them with PLENTY of witnesses.

We also need to re do the GOP in states that have already voted. It is better to be sure it is OUR choice, and not some one put there by outsiders then to be "on schedule" election wise. This is our country, INSIST on low tech voting and a re do of the states (GOP) that have already voted.

Mainstream media ignored or ridiculed Ron Paul as all knows.

There has been a very concerted effort to not let Ron Paul be elected President. The problem as I see it is that Ron Paul is who we need, but how can "We the people" keep him alive?

The FBI (despite their web site stating "their rigorous obedience to the US Constitution") works AGAINST the USA and its legitimate government- Traitors, Treason, not sure about murder.

The Secret Service assist in setting up good people to be killed or killing them, etc to further the destruction of a free and independent.

CIA is so corrupt a dictatorship would not have them because they cannot be trusted. They are more of a "gang" then an agency.

The heads of the Military are UN thugs working for the destruction of a free America (and possibly all/most of those military suicides are actually murders) and those beneath them are "following orders" instead of arresting those TRAITORS committing TREASON (Panetta and Dempsey to start with).

Law Enforcement has been bought off with "military grade toys" and willing to be used against Americans and those legally allowed to be here and aid in the destruction of their own country like the law enforcement did in Germany (Opening Statement by Justice Robert H. Jackson, Chief of Counsel for the United States Nuremberg Trail roberthjackson org / the-man/nuremberg-trial/ .)

At least states are fighting UN Agenda 21 and NDAA by refusing to allow them in each state. Alabama was the first to not allow Agenda 21 which takes away our right to own property and businesses so that the UN can use the USA's natural resources. They should refuse the Patriot Act, etc also!

So Ron Paul is who we need, and we cannot allow the others any access to OUR government. But how do we keep him alive?

Where is the proof Ron Paul is a racist? The articles printed in his newsletter have been debunked. He has consistently said that the drug laws are racist, targeting the black population. That is a very broad and general statement. Ron Paul is not responsible for the decisions of the Supreme Court. The Constitution has been dead for a long time. Racist and anti-semitic are broad terms to define anyone who disagrees with a lot of policies.

Brandon's handy list makes clear that voting for Romney is jumping from the pan to the fire. Obama is a disaster, but we are not at war with Iran... yet. Romney is a zionist. He will take us to war with Iran, whether via Syria or not, the result will be the same.

Vote FOR someone, whether Ron Paul, Gary Johnson or another independent candidate. Neither "choice" being served up by the corrupt power structure will be anything less than a disaster for the American people.

Ron Paul is NOT a racist......

He is an corporate lackie who supports the big 911 lie.
He is a hypocrite for supporting one of the two corrupt criminal parties, D or R makes no difference, they are both wrong.
The recent vote in the Senate (Rand, like father like son) to deny states the right to label GMO food proves he is in the bag for big dirty corrupt agri business.

So go ahead and debate the racism angle all you want, clearly you are avoiding reality......unless of course you guys support the big 911 lie too?????
